    E bike recommendations?

    That regulation actually only applies to class 1 bikes. If you have a class 3 bike like a LOT of newer bikes this will not help as they are 28mph max speed so the regulation would not apply. I do agree that if some people would use good sense half of these regulations would never be needed...

    E bike recommendations?

    Never understood the idea of restricting bikes on a bike trail because they could go over ___ speed. That would be the same as saying no car that can go over the speed limit is allowed on a road - wait that would be 99.99% of everything made nowadays. Set a darn speed limit on the trail if that...

    UTV Tires

    I agree with Jeff - I would not worry about going up a tire size or two. We been doing it on tons of machines and of the ones I repair I have not noticed any change in bearing wear - most wear we see is from mud or extreme use. Most issues I deal with is guys crashing into stuff......

    UTV Tires

    On my sport side by side I run Carnivores - very tough tire, decent on the asphalt and great in the woods on a variety of WV trails from rock to mud. On my Mule Pro (bigger utility machine) I have Pitfall growlers. Excellent in the woods and seem like they may last a LONG time. 1200 miles so...

    Just saw this on Facebook - you dont need a $200 Ebike when you can get this baby that does "50-60 mph" (with what looks like no front brakes) for a mere $200. Good lord, someone is going to die on that thing.

    E bike recommendations?

    Seats are tricky, finding one that you like is a very personal thing and proper adjustment is vital. Play around with the forward/back position, tilt, etc and see if that helps. If it doesnt, start looking as there are about 1000 different seats out there - one for every bum as they say....

    E bike recommendations?

    I will offer a little advice. Buy a good bike, one that fits you, and one you like. We were in the same boat as you a year ago and ended up buying two Specialized E-Bikes and spent way more than we planned (about 7k total). Test rode a ton of different makes and models and when we tried the...

    L vs M series Kubotas?

    I went from an L to a MX. The MX is a nice step up and a good deal heavier duty for not a whole lot more money.

    Thoughts RE Bad Boy Renegade Diesel vs. Kubota ZD1200 ZT Mowers

    I found ZTRs and steep hills dont mix. I had one (Ferris) for a few years and the mower was great but on our steep hills it just was not that great compared to a 4x4 Kubota. May want to test one on your land before buying to make sure it works for you.

    Mini X mower ?

    A lot of the Kubotas have a two position valve under the right side cover that lets you switch the hydraulic fluid flow ~ for stuff like running a hammer vs a thumb. Not sure which position I need to have it in ~ guessing the same as the thumb but n0t sure. Going to call the company that...

    Mini X mower ?

    How are you liking your mower now that you have had it for a while. I just ordered. Baruch mower for out KX91. Do you have to change the Adjustable Auxiliary Port (AAP) from position 1 to 2 (under the side cover, the valve) when going from the thumb to the mower? Thanks

    Ram HD 6.4 Hemi?

    My 2500 is firm but not bad. If you drop the pressures down the TPMS light will come on but the ride improves greatly (if I am not hauling or towing of course)

    Ram HD 6.4 Hemi?

    87 Octane. I have the 6.4 (2018) and it pulls my 12K dump just fine. Not as fast or as hard as a diesel but does it without any issues or drama.

    That is a terrible tragedy and I sure there will be a lot of blaming going around, but I feel bad for all the families that are waiting and hoping their loved ones can be found alive. Hopefully they learn from this and can make buildings safer in the future.

    Noisy Alamo Flail

    I did one years ago and other than everything being rather heavy I dont recall it being a big deal. I do recall the bearing was darn pricey but that is not a shock when you are working on commercial grade mowers.

    Will my tractor damage neighbor’s rototiller?

    I ran a 42" on my 50hp before. I normally used it on BX but had to till a garden a fair distance away and the BX is too slow on the road. It worked fine. I did have a slip clutch on mine and set it on the light side just in case I caught something and jammed it up.

    I read that somewhere also. I am not sure yet- didnt seem any worse than my old Farm Boss but I will have to pay attention. Wonder where the balance point is between the saw cutting faster vs more fuel is used? A slower cutting saw may use less fuel but you cut less wood so I would guess...

    STIHL MS500i

    Was wondering if anyone has got one and if so how they like it. I put my order in for one the other day and dont really have any idea when it will come in but hopefully in the next month or so. The fuel injection was a big factor in my decision as well as nice jump in hp over my current farm boss.

    Towing Capacity of L2501

    Pulled almost 12k with my MX on sloped ground before - wont do it again. I knew I was pushing it and while it did fine I know it was not the safest thing to do, just could fit anything else in the space so I went VERY slow

    How much slope ?

    Totally agree - I mow 30% weekly with a 4x4 tractor and cant say I give it any thought at all. Just make sure it is dry so you can get used to it and just leave the machine in 4x4.

    Has Kubtoa BX loader weight capacity gotten any better? (vs. John Deere 1 series / Massey GC1700 series)

    I have had a BX for several years now and like the little tractor but do not feel I would want it to lift much more. It can get unstable pretty easy with the current lift capacity due to its light weight and narrow wheel base.

    I also go with the locking type as they solve the pin issue.

    Good ebike

    Not disagreeing but sometime you really have to pay to play. On the street, in a flat area about any electric bike is good. Take it to the mountains and start bombing the trails you better spend some money if you want it to last more than one trip.
